Effective treatments exist for mental health problems such as depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. Sometimes you may have questions around which treatments are helpful. You may also face challenges in getting to your appointments due to cost or scheduling issues. You should work with your provider to address these issues and make sure you are able to get the treatment you need.  You can also access other resources including NAMI or Mental Health America, local mental health authorities, behavioral health benefit if they have private insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, and Veterans Affairs national number or local facility for veterans.
